    RPGs rarely hold my attention but I happily sank my time into this one no problem. There's enough quality content here that it feels like the developer or publisher is selling itself short by setting the price so low, as I would have easily been satisfied with this at double the price. It's even more impressive knowing the game was developed by three people.

    Mostly great bosses and some nice narrative flourishes do a lot to make up for the fairly repetitive combat and generic story. [Issue#253, p.63]

    Anima: Gate of Memories is a game filled with potential that it generally fails to execute.

    Designed as a Devil May Cry clone but based on a card game, Anima barely balances on its playability, with constant problems with the camera and more than wonky platforming sections. Terribly dated graphics are just a final nail in this mediocre coffin.

    The game starts slow and then it pick up the pace a bit.

    Pros:
    +Story keeps you going (even though can be predictable sometimes) and having short stories is fun.
    +Combat is fun and do it nicely (Not DMC but isn't boring).
    +Exploration in game also it explores the lore more.
    +Most areas are unique.
    +Most bosses are fun to fight against and has unique theme.
    +Puzzles (nothing fancy but they are not boring either).
    Cons:
    -Some areas feels empty.
    -Sometimes while trying to do some platform stuff, you hope that the camera could be better.

    So, overall good game; If you want to explore while getting into lore with some combat here and there. This game is a nice pick.

    Ya quisieran muchos de los AAA del mercado siquiera estar la mitad de cuidados que este título.
    Jugando al título enseguida se nos vendrán a la mente grandes sleepers de su generación, como fueron NieR o El Shaddai, sin duda grandes fuentes de inspiración que encajan perfectamente en el mundo de Anima.

То босс попадается которого 40 попыток надо чтоб убить, то паркур какой-нибудь по 3 дня не пройти.. Подача сюжета и истории как-то слабо сделано, не сильно цепляют. Плюс мир построен так, что приходится долго искать проходы .
    А технически игра хорошо сделана. Интересные персонажи, истории, локации. Для кого сюжет не на первом месте и паркур не парит, думаю, останутся довольны. А я вот не очень.
